  10. Maintenance & MINI Care
    Hey everyone. Hope all is well. I recently purchased a 2008 Mini Cooper S. I’m struggling to find a compatible OBD scanner that isn’t £200-£300 here in the uk.

  14. Maintenance & MINI Care
    Hi All, Just replaced the wiper blades on my 2007 R56 Cooper S and I like the areo style blades but I find that on the passenger side the end carriers on straight rather than pressing on the window. Not a big deal but just annoying that it doesn't clean where it's supposed to. Anyone else...
